    Shortcut
    I live on Main Street in Fries. I would like to know why every time Fries gets a fire or rescue call to Ivanhoe Road somewhere, they can’t cut up Hilltown Road to take a shortcut to Ivanhoe Road and save time instead of flying down Main Street with their lights and sirens wide open. Makes no sense to me. I used to be in rescue and I always thought every second saved was precious in saving someone’s life or home. I’m a taxpayer just like everyone else around here and I’d like to know.

    Off the street
    I am calling about Grayson County High School. If they have all this money to re-fix some bleachers, why don’t they fix a track for kids to run on and get them off the street with so many bad drivers as there are texting and doing drugs?

    Welcome to GCHS
    Kudos to Grayson County High School for a great open house. Administrators and teachers were inviting and helpful. Great job.

    Fries concerns
    I’m a concerned citizen of Fries. I’ve got some kids that play football over here. Last year they took up over $1,000 on a car wash to buy new equipment and I just wonder why none of the equipment showed up. Also, at the town meeting, you got to either be a member on the board to speak or you are not allowed to speak. I would like to know why.

    Back to basics?

    Leadership absent
    What if we took away all the politics — Democrat and Republican — and just looked at it like someone from another country. We have no leadership. We have things going on that nobody wants to try to solve. You just want to fight and bicker. How about just using some good ole common sense.

    Enforcement zone
    Another series of wrecks on Fancy Gap Mountain on Interstate 77. When is our law enforcement going to realize we need to patrol the mountain instead of doing all the radar between the Fancy Gap and Hillsville exits? We need more law enforcement on the mountain.

    Harassing orangutans
    We had to pay the Indian people for taking their property. I think the people in the rain forest taking the orangutans’ land where they won’t have any place to go, need to pay big-time, too, or made completely to stop harassing the orangutan animals.

    Spiffing up
    I was pleased to see the Galax Beautification Committee has re-organized. I have a suggestion for the group. Many years ago, dogwood trees were planted in the center of the four-lane from Fries Road to the city limits at the caution light. They did not survive. However, it would look very nice if the Bartlett Pear trees were planted like the ones that are growing from Country Club Lane to McDonald’s. Also, if you enter town from Route 89 side, it is unattractive. It would be nice if improvements could be made to the south side of town.
